 When all else fails, and the instructions are missing - kick it!
Welcome to Thursday GCSE results day πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
Nice warm hug.
Breakfast with brew.
I gave hubby a sloppy wet πŸ’‹ before he went to work.
The plan was the rest of us was going to go and walk around Bidford Car Boot this morning...
While they were getting ready, I brewed myself some nice coffee to drink...
Suddenly one son didn't want to go,
He wanted to sit in his bedroom and play on his computer...
I turned off the internet, and went to get the newspaper.
It was too late to go to Bidford now :(
I came back after 10 mins.
My son got his GCSE results!
Well done!
Now to celebrate out...
(Dragging the other son off his computer, for some fresh air)
Quick look around before a celebration drinks and nibble!
Nice sofa pity I have one and pity it's green!
Now for drinks and nibbles!
I declined a bacon bap, as keeping off the bacon as I had loads last week...
At least I won't have to worry about anyone giving me covid here!
Got some more bits and we left.
One son walked home.
The rest of us, went off to the near-by lake to feed the ducks and play in the stream.
At least the ducks came over and had something to eat.
Now to go over to the bridge.
Son put on his welly's and had a quick go in the river.
He will have to go in the shower when he gets back home.
While he is having that shower.
The new duvet cover with sunshine throw goes on the bed.
Late lunch.
I write yesterday's blog post.
Moving onto last Friday blog post about our last full day in Blackpool.
As soon as I have published it, Hubby walks through the door....
He has a nice sloppy wet πŸ’‹
Tea is ready as well.
We caught up with 2 episodes of:
During the second one, Hubby mowed the front lawn.
I silently waited outside when he was in the back garden, he came round the front.
"Boo!"I shouted.
He must have jumped ten feet...
"Payback,"I replied
"What for?"He asked.
"Breaking 2 ovens in 9 months.....!"
(Which I had to pay for two ovens and get them fitted!)
We watched the new
Alex Polizzi: My Hotel Nightmare.
I had a quick look in today's newspaper.
